Damn, Animal Crossing NH is performing at the same level as Pokemon SwSh in the US.

I'd bed its outperforming SwSh greatly on the digital front due to the shutdown/lockdowns.

Anything for week 3?

Sorry, I couldn't get anything for that week. However, I have 2 weeks' worth to report today. I didn't check AC though.

Week ending 4-11 (but only up to Friday):

 Final Fantasy 7 Remake: 19k (day 1)

 Resident Evil 3 Remake: 1.8k PS, 0.8k XB (first 6 days of week 2)

 Persona 5 Royal: 2k (day 1) (not sure how I got that since it came out in late March...)

 Tokyo Mirage Sessions: 0.1k (first 6 days of week 13)

Week ending 4-18 (full week):

 FF7R: 4k (week 2)

 RE3R: 0.9k PS, 0.4k XB (week 3)



Week ending 4-25
Trials of Mana (week 1): 500 PS4, no data available for Switch
FFVII Remake (week 3): 500, all SKUs (only on PS4)
...Now I'm gravely disappointed that I forgot Sakura Wars! *karate chops table in half out of frustration*

I suspect FF is supply limited, and in all likelihood ToM sold better on Switch, like most other multiplats at my store, at least physically.



Laziness is at an end. Week ending June 6:
Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive week 2: 2.2k
Borderlands Collection Switch week 2: 1.3k
Bioshock Collection Switch week 2: 1.5k
Xcom 2 Collection Switch: no data
Trials of Mana PS4 (week ?):



Is it just me, or is my post chopped off right where the ToM PS4 numbers should be?

Nice to see you back!

Yes it is cutting off - no ToM numbers appear.

Any strong holdovers?  I imagine Animal Crossing is still going strong.

And TLOU2 is on the horizon.

Ok, ToM ps4 was less than 100, switch was roughly zero. AC is doing fantastically I'd imagine, but since we regularly get official sales updates, I'd rather check smaller and/or 3rd-party games. I will definitely check TLOU2; it could give insight into how small physical has become vs digital even for blockbuster exclusives.

Wow at TLOU2!

COD MW2 last year was ~48,000 across both XBO/PS4 and ~27K on PS4 so this is huge for single-plat.

Animal Crossing W1 is still the highest number you have ever reported though - 108,000.

LOL at Arms.

Arms sales jumped 300%! The Smash boost is real!

I honestly don't know if anything will beat that Animal Crossing launch...maybe BotW 2 or the next 3D Mario. Or Mario Kart 9 if that comes to Switch.
